Building on what we learned about RTFM last week, we converted our blinky code to use the RTFM scheduling facilities.

This week we learned about Real-time For the Masses (RTFM), which gives us tools for concurrent programming on our embedded hardware.

Following on from last week, this time we did “blinky”: making the LED flash on the hardware. Once again, Tim kindly led us through this and supplied some additional LEDs and resistors so we could get multiple LEDs flashing.

The Brighton Rust group has been learning how to run Rust programs “bare metal” on embedded hardware. That is, hardware without any operating system: an Arm chip, some memory, the odd button and a few LEDs.
